Fry the onions, tomatoes, and garlic in a medium stockpot with the butter. After 3 minutes, add the Italian seasonings and cook until fragrant. After that, add the beef broth and tomatoes (with juice). If needed, you may add more beef broth for a thinner sauce. Bring to a boil. 

In a bowl, mix the ground beef with the salt and pepper and form into 1-inch meatballs. One the sauce mix is boiling, add the balls of beef and boil for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, simmer for about 30 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through. For a final 10 minutes, simmer uncovered to allow the sauce to reduce. 

Serve on the sandwich roll on top of the provolone and extra sauce.
